Abstract:

" ... One of those dazzling biographies that informs our modern life."--Susan Eisenhower, Chairman of the Eisenhower Group, author of Mrs. Ike "Today more than ever, Muslims and non-Muslims alike need to be reminded of the courage, compassion and intellect of Emir Abd el-Kader Abd el-Kader's jihad provides Muslims with a much- needed antidote to the toxic false jihads of today, dominated by anger, violence and politics."--His Royal Highness, Prince Hassan bin Talal (Prince of Jordan) New York Times reporter and author of Passionate Nomad: The Life of Freya StarkWhat's Right with IslamThe New York Times hailed him as "one of the few great men of the century." The warrior/saint had won the heart of the French nation, his sworn enemy and the invader of his Algerian homeland. He reached the summit of his fame after he saved the lives of thousands of Christians during a Turkish rampage in Damascus. Elkader, Iowa, is named after the emir. John W. Kiser is the author of The Monks of Tibhirine (St. Martin's Press, 2003), which won the French Siloe Prize.
